Aerospace Road Trip

Northwestern Colorado


Join CSBR’s Next Business Development Road Trip! 

Yampa Valley-Craig-Steamboat Springs: July 23-25

CSBR and several CSBR Member companies and organizations on our next Business Development Road Trip to the Yampa Valley!  We’ll be touring the Steamboat Springs Airport, the Hayden Airport, and meeting with several members of City Councils, County Commissions, local Congressional Staff, several State Senators and State Representatives, and many chambers, economic development organizations, and area businesses. 

The purpose of these road trips is to inform people outside of the Boulder-Denver-Colorado Springs areas about the importance of aerospace in Colorado and to seek potential suppliers and subcontractors.  This road trip follows several successful events CSBR conducted last year in Pueblo, Alamosa, Durango, Grand Junction, and Rifle.  Last year’s road trip had over 200 attendees and was covered extensively by the local media.

There is no cost to participate, but you have to pay any expenses not sponsored by other organizations such as travel, hotel rooms, and meals.  Many meals and events are sponsored, but you have to be prepared to pay for some meals, hotel rooms, etc.  CSBR will be renting a van, sponsored by the Colorado Competitive Council (thanks Miz Cordero!) if you would like to carpool. Or you can drive yourself. 

A block of rooms have been reserved at the Clarion Inn in Craig at $79.00/night


Mention "Aerospace Event" to recieve room rate.
